Have you ever wanted to go on a camping trip, but had no idea what to pack? Well, 19-year-olds Andy Bray and Jacob Hill have just the solution! The two teens run their own business called The Lazy Camper, a micro business that provides festival or concert-goers with a complete camping kit. What a great idea! The kit includes a tent, sleeping bags, fuel for a fire, utensils, and safety kit, among other items. Both boys had the idea for this micro business after attending a festival and having to buy each item individually, which proved costly. They saw an opening in the market for an all-in-one kit for similar situations. And the idea has proved profitable! Andy and Jacob have recently increased their production in hopes of fulfilling orders, and even started talking to festivals for additional marketing.
